The Wadsworth Mansion distinguishes itself by hosting only one event each day. With elegant ambiance and the freedom to design a truly unique and memorable event, the Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill Estate is the ultimate place to host your celebration -of-a-lifetime.
Considered to be one of the most beautiful properties in Connecticut, The Wadsworth Mansion at Long Hill Estate is the quintessential country estate exemplifying the Gilded-Age and the perfect setting for an elegant affair.
Restored in 1999 to its original grandeur, this 20th century Beaux Arts style mansion is framed by formal landscaping and nestled on 103 acres of wooded park lands in the rolling hills of the Connecticut River Valley.
The mansion’s ballrooms with marble fireplaces and coffered ceilings can comfortably accommodate up to two hundred guests for a formal sit down dinner and larger numbers for an informal cocktail reception. The loggia, a sun drenched room with vaulted ceilings and French doors, opens onto a grand patio. Overlooking a seven hundred foot vista, the patio is perfect for entertaining during cocktail hour and dancing beneath the stars. The tennis pavilion and rose trellis provide an intimate setting for an outdoor ceremony.

Nestled in a Forest atmosphere, the gorgeous old mansion looks like the White House. High Tree Canopy, big lawns, nice ceremony location surrounded by roses. George Petro – GSP Fine Photography
Wadsworth has an impressive entrance – Late 18th century grandeur, sweeping lawns and expansive grounds including a tennis house and rose gardens. Best suited for midsize events which are hosted in the three public rooms on the main floor though they can tent the patio. The staff is very personable and flexible.
